On 20 of March librarians from Sumy region visited our Window on America center. We spoke about the library’s role as provider of books, as a place where reading is important and where citizens can gather formally and informally by providing free space for meetings and special events. For many years, public libraries were as quiet places for study and research with collection of books, magazines and knowledgeable librarians. Today’s libraries are being designed with more space for people and technology and less space for books. New technology transform libraries from what they are into what they must be. Most of attention of our guests was attracted by Kindle and iPads. In the future our libraries will be different and at least as important as they are today.
